Customer Question
I'm doing my 2017...

I'm doing my 2017 taxes. I have income from a part time job I have following retirement. I also get retirement income from the state and railroad retirement,

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

I am wondering why I'm being taxed on my work income and pension income and Social Security benefits.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Can you explain this for me
